Reviews

The book doesn't just expose some striking pieces of creativity, it also reflects on changing attitudes towards air travel - and how design shaped that - as well as the ways developments in technology moved things forward...Airline Maps also works simply as a visual record, with enough design nostalgia to earn it a place on the coffee table or in the studio bookshelf. * Creative Review *
This lovely book is an opportunity to explore the history and artwork of air travel, as well as to consider what makes this particular kind of cartography unique...This lovely book is an opportunity to explore the history and artwork of air travel, as well as to consider what makes this particular kind of cartography unique. -- Mark Vanhoenacker * Financial Times *
